The Kobe Cheeseburger served at Spark Restaurant in Provo is an absolutely delightful gourmet cheeseburger. It’s recommended that you have it cooked medium and with all the toppings possible because this burger was really good. The lettuce and tomato were pretty standard and fresh but Spark Restaurant’s special Jalapeno Aioli sauce was a wonderfully impressive touch to the Kobe beef, caramelized onions, melted cheddar cheese and crunchy bun. In fact, about half way through the Kobe Cheeseburger I got a big mouthful of the Jalapeno Aioli sauce and it was tremendous!
Some of the details worth sharing about Spark Restaurant include the “cool” atmosphere that Spark exudes. It’s no joke that you feel special walking into the restaurant but special in a way that also makes it a surprisingly comfortable restaurant. The service was really good and you couldn’t help but look around. The burger had only one debatable flaw, debatable because I actually loved it and hated it at the same time. What was this love/hate relationship about? The bun.
The bun is extremely dangerous to the mouth and seems to tear at the lips and skin of the outside of your mouth. I’ve never opened so wide for a bite of burger. BUT it was so worth every effort because I loved the crunchy outer bun as it mixed with the Kobe beef and Spark’s toppings. After the first few scratches I was used to it and I was healed within a few minutes of ending the meal. I do still feel it worth being a mentioned as you go there for the best burger I’ve had in the last month!
Overall results of my first trip to Spark Restaurant Lounge: Burger is tremendous. Meat is amazing. Truffle parmesan fries or herbal fries are on the menu and both are a nice combination of flavor and crisp. The ketchup for the fries is also some serious goodness. The atmosphere is cool and outside of the crispy bun occasionally ripping your lips this is one of the best burgers in the valley. Delicious!
